Untreated women with breast cancer have higher tissue levels of estrogen, which are correlated with increased breast-tissue enzymatic activity (aromatase, sulfatase, and 17[beta]-OH dehydrogenase), especially in women with a genetic predisposition to increased or aberrant breast-tissue estrogen synthesis and metabolism.
Breast tumors produce increasing levels of estrone sulfatase activity, and a majority of breast tumors are estrogen dependent.
